Walvis Bay Golf News

21 October 2021 | Sports

Thirty-three players participated in weather conditions more aligned to wind surfing at the popular PAR 3 competition last week.

Alas, just like the expeditions to the North Pole, some of the players failed to make it to the end. No names mentioned. Braving Walvis Bay at its best on a great format of golf from different tee off positions, it was Grant Mather winning the day on a best gross of 63. The best nett went to none other than one of the sponsors, Boel Grobbelaar, on 57.5. The prize for the second best nett went Poena Johnson on 60, with Emile Vilbert on 61 in third spot. Thereafter followed Wynand Breytenbach (61.25), Amandio Sardinha (62) and Wayne Hart (62.5).
There were two lucky draws that were convincingly won by last year’s winner, Tienie de Wet, and Andre Burger, who is now becoming the luckiest golfer at the club.
Jaco de Witt was at the prize giving to hand out the prizes. It is reported that this event will be staged again next year, without the small print of ‘weather permitting’. Our thanks go to Jaco, Boel Grobbelaar and Pieter Hamman for their wonderful sponsorship.

Just a reminder that if you leave a divot on the tee box, your will be fined 20 bucks – without exception. You have been warned!

Sponsors

We have had a few sponsors over the past few weeks and the club is now the proud owner of a sod cutter and a new lawn mower for the aprons. We have acknowledged the sponsors on the social platforms and we are truly spoilt when it comes to sponsors and to all of them, we are very grateful. We all know that without sponsors maintaining the course would be near impossible, thanks guys. Members are requested and reminded to please support the sponsors. Last week Attie van der Westhuizen was present and won N$100 in the member’s draw. He thanks Jens Paschke and president John Sardinha for not being there at 18:00 for the draw, allowing him to win. It is reported [by a friend] that Jens was playing golf at Rossmund (true story).
The Joker still ducks capture as last week it was Cailean von der Fecht whose name came out of the bucket, but alas, the card out of the envelope was the 10 of hearts so the pool climbs to N$145 000 this week Friday. If not won on 23 October, it will be a whopping N$149 999.99 on 30 October. Watch this space for month-end special if the pool gets reaches this amount. If you win N$150 000, you need to pay tax so we have avoided that by keeping the pool to N$149 999.99 haha! Remember, without a ticket you cannot win!

Upcoming

Friday (22 October) is the CHAIN fundraiser and from all reports they have a large field in excess of 20 teams. The draw will be circulated soonest, but it will not be a shotgun start, so watch the various social platforms. With Chain Day on Friday, there will be a club sponsored competition on Saturday with the format to be confirmed on the social platforms.
Don’t forget the NGK Meersig fundraiser on 5 November. For further info, contact Kurt Brits. Just a reminder that the Concord Yellow Ball on 30 October, is a 27-hole event, with one each of better ball, one score and both scores to count on each of the nine holes. Tee off will obviously be earlier, probably about 10:00.

The calendar until the end of November is as follows:
22/10 CHAIN fundraiser
23/10 Club comp
30/10 Concord Yellow Ball
5/11 NGK fund raiser
6/11 Club Comp
7/11 Sages
13/11 Namib Mills
19/11 WBPHS Stadium Golf
20/11 Multi-Save
27/11 ITGuru
